There's another reason they don't get used. The 'standard' reactors require enriched fuels. The same companies that sell the reactors also supply the fuels, or the enrichment services. It's basically vendor lock-in.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Unfortunately that would only be the case if refusing the vaccines removed them from the gene pool, but unfortunately it doesn't. Instead if exposes people who cannot have the vaccine due to allergies, immune system deficiencies etc. Not to mention the increased risk that in an environment where most people are immune to infection but some people are not there can be increased chance of it mutating and becoming more virulent or even potentially being able to work around the existing immunities.
Company with vested interest in tracking people by their actual names online thinks everyone should use their real names online?
There's more OSX and Linux malware out there than you might think. Especially OSX. When it comes to Linux I'd imagine that that is mainly for servers, where being able to e.g. natively run a sweep over all those shared directories that your staff are using to cache their files, or scanning incoming mail on your mail server or the like would be advantageous.
It's quite likely that the prosecution in this case deliberately torpedoed themselves so that they could have an excuse to dismiss the case and avoid setting exactly this precedent.
Possiblly not a bad thing given the vast amount of security flaws and exploits that PDF has been hit with, especially over the last few years.

TFA is about Australia, and Australia doesn't use HFCS at all - we use sugar in everything that would have HFCS in the US. And we have the exact same obesity problems as the US does.

You're looking for a roughly circular feature? I think this is a more likely spot personally:
Menthol is the active chemical in vapor rub, amongst other things.
The concept of a computer-generated 'virtual' singer / popstar isn't really something new at all. It's probably an inevitable consequence of the modern music industry and its manufactured pop artists, fake music videos and whatnot. A virtual idol won't need to eat or sleep, they can never be involved in a scandals, they don't do drugs, they'll do exactly what you tell them, they don't get royalties and they never retire.
I guess Lucas got tired of people saying his films lack depth and are filled with flat, two-dimensional characters.
